What is SmartLipo?
SmartLipo is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure. It is performed using a small cannula (or tube) about the size of the tip of a pen that is inserted under the skin. The laser delivers energy directly to the fat cells through the cannula, causing them to rupture. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. New collagen is produced resulting in tissue tightening and improvement in overall contour of treated area.
Areas Treated with SmartLipo
SmartLipo Triplex is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, “bra fat”, abdomen, “love handles”, “saddle bags”, inner and outer thighs and knees.
How long does a SmartLipo treatment take?
On average, the Smartlipo procedure will take 1.5-2 hours. This depends on the number of treatment areas and the size of the areas.
How many SmartLipo treatments will I need?
Typically, patients only require one treatment. Results can be seen within a week, with continuous improvement over 4 to 6 months. Patients may wear a compression garment for 4-7 days after treatment, depending on the body area.
Laser Liposuction recovery
Most patients are ready to return to their daily activities 4-5 days following the procedure. Patients may have to wear some post-surgical garments and bandages to aid in the healing process for one to two weeks. Generally, the skin returns to normal within 3 – 6 months following SmartLipo. Infection at the incision sites is the only serious risk with SmartLipo. However, with careful monitoring and follow-up care, most patients reach a complete recovery with minimal complications.
